Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

  I am thankful that Gremmie is not my responsibility. No wonder why Joanie can’t get paid to train gremlins, she doesn’t know how.

Millie is thankful to his friend , Sawyer for sharing this PTU Pooper badge that Teddy’s mom made for him.

Yes, Millie has popped in the PTU every time he has ever been in it. Last week, he went to the vet for a rabies shot and blood work. All is good, except his thyroid levels so he needs to take a larger dose of meds. Jinx went to the vet too and all was good with him despite being 15.

We are also joining Sammy’s Poetry Day, here is my haiku based on this photo:

Monkey behind lens
click, click with darn flashy box
reminds me of mom.


And here are the Friendly Fill-ins for Friday. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

  1. Ahhh – another Pooper joins the Club! I like Gremmie’s cowboy hat…..very cute. As for your poem this week – it’s super good. I wonder what they think when they see humans click, click, clicking away to capture kitties, monkeys and even each other on film. Photos are forever! EEEK!

    Love, Teddy

  2. I think your Mom would be thankful if she could retire that club badge MOL! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  3. Your haiku with that pic made really made me chuckle! Good one! I’m still trying to figure out what PTU stands for! Maybe I should be thankful I don’t know! LOL! 😆

    1. Thank you. Prisoner transport unit- also known as a cat carrier. 🙂

  4. I’m with Linda as for PTU! ~grin~ And Gremmie is smashing in his hat. Very cute, as always. And thanks for adding my friend to your prayer list. As of last night he posted on FB that he didn’t want to read too much into it but was feeling marginally better! I am guessing he meant he didn’t know if it would last, but not sure he has faith, either, in which case maybe he will find some in the face of this. We can hope. Be well, my friend!

    1. Prisoner transport unit- a cat carrier 🙂 I am glad your friend is doing better.

  5. Cute monkey/camera poem.

    Hope you are having a wonderful day/week and staying warm … the NE seems to be getting a lot of snow, which causes all sorts of problems, and we hope it hasn’t affected you.

    1. Thank you. We got 10 inches of snow, but all is good- thank you for caring. XO

  6. OhMyGosh, I just noticed Gremmie’s hat! I have been reading comments here and re-reading the post… 🙂 Gremmie seems pretty comfy. A most excellent haiku!

  7. We had to giggle about the Pooper’s Club badge. . .though we know it’s not fun for your mom!

  8. You are a wonderful aunt to Gremmie, Prancie! But, we also don’t blame you for needing a bit of a break. He looks like a busy fella. Oh, and Millie, Evan proudly poops in his PTU, too!

    Your poem is so fun, and so true! That little monkey sure does look like when humans try to snap a photo, doesn’t it? Happy Thursday!

  9. Sawyer was delighted to pass the PTU Pooper badge on to Millie. We loved your haiku as it is so true! XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

    1. I think there should be a badge for that too. Glad you like the haiku 🙂

  10. I love your poem. I always love your poems.

    I’m thankful for all the kitties I get to visit everyday.

    Have a purrfect Thankful Thursday. My best to your peeps. ♥

  11. There are awards for poopin’ in the PTU? I never knew ’bout that. MOUSES! I have been misisn’ my callin’ for years!!! purrs

    PS. I’ve never pooped in the PTU before. Does it require trainin’? Should I be “tryin’ it out” before takin’ an actual trip in the car? Inquirin’ minds wanna know. purrs

    1. I think it is something that just comes naturally, but if you never have then maybe you should practice 🙂

  12. Gremmie, you are fur sure rocking that cowboy hat, lil guy. And we think Joanie is a GREAT trainer. You’re just going through a phase, that’s all.

  13. Hmm… I wonder if Gremmie’s are hard to train. I’ve never thought about that. That silly Monkey. Do you think he’s trying to take a selfie?! I think my Mom is that monkey, too! My answers for fill ins: 1. Before you groom, you need to eat. 2. After catnip noms. 3. Winter cat naps. 4. Spring hummy birdies.

  14. DOODZ….we iz glad for de most part yur vizit ta de eeeeeeeeeeeeevil
    place wented sew well …..yur club badge iz awesum !!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 ♥♥

  15. Happy Thursday! Our vet comes to our house. They think the vet lady is here to play with us! No Gremmies here, but we’re sure Hamlet would disembowel it on sight, so no luck in training.

  16. Got to watch those thyroid levels but sounds like a mostly clean bill of health for all. Love the gremlin who I think is training them. 15, keep on going sweet kitty.

  17. Mew mew mew oh Prancie mee iss out of breath mee-youinn so much!! What a heelareeuss poe-em!!!!! Did Aunty Ellen laff???
    Wee sure did!
    **nose bumpsss** Siddhartha Henry =^,.^=

  18. We thankfully don’t need that badge here!

    We think our Mama look exactly like that monkey with the camera around her neck! ;p

    the critters in the cottage xo

  19. Mom said both Admiral and I have peed in the PTU but not pooped. So far. Hope I don’t. BUT if I do, I’ll want a badge too.

  20. Hmmm….why does that monkey with the camera seem to make everyone think of us Moms with cameras??? 🙂
